If you have found your way to Mekong delta, you cannot afford to miss floating markets or “Cho Noi".

This type of market can be found in most provinces of Mekong delta and some big and famous floating markets are Cai Rang, Phong Dien (CanTho City), Nga Nam (Soc Trang) , Nga Bay (Hau Giang).

Floating markets have existed for a long time in the region. It basically is a market where people sell and buy products above water.

Since rivers are the main way of transportation, ferries and boats are very popular for traveling and transporting.

Gradually, people gathered together at one or some certain places on the river to sell fruits mostly picked from their own gardens.

Then they made business by selling foods, goods which had been brought from other places./.
